1. Initial Site Meeting.
I will visit your property to discuss the proposals and offer advice on your requirements.
Once the visit is complete I will prepare a fee quotation to cover works as agreed.
Many clients prefer to appoint for the obtaining approvals only, these being the Planning and Building Regulations only.
The full service is available where required.
2. Site Survey.
Once fee's are agreed I will carry out a measured survey of the existing property along with photos and produce the as existing drawing which is prepared on a CAD system.
Where a land survey is required, I will organise for a land survey to be carried out for this work.
3. Scheme Drawings.
Once the survey is complete, I will produce a scheme drawing to suit your requirements and further optional schemes where appropriate.
Subject to the type of project, these scheme drawings can be used for the Pre-Application advice from the Local Authority.
Once the final scheme drawing is approved, I will prepare the final planning drawing and necessary statements and submit to the Local Authority.
I will discuss the process of the application with the appointed planning officer during the application process.
5. Building Regulations.
Once Planning Approval obtained, I will prepare a set of building regulation drawings showing the construction of the works and submit these to the Local Authority for approval.
These drawings are also suitable to the builders to price for the construction works.
6. Tender & Supervision.
Along with the Building Regulation drawings I can prepare a Tender document to enable a selection of Builders to price the works.
Once a Builder is appointed I can offer the service of Site Supervision to oversee the construction works if required.
I also work on a freelance basis for many other larger Architectural Practices to assist in preparing drawings for both Planning and Building Regulations, Electrical Contractors for the as fitted electrical layout drawings and Conservatory Suppliers for planning applications where required.
